Hanukkah runs from December 7-15 this year, celebrating the triumph of the Maccabees and a very miraculous bit of oil. Of course, there's no shortage of culinary ways to mark the occasion, from crispy potato latkes to sugar-dusted sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts). We've gathered a few of the places offering specials around town below.

9th & Hennepin Donuts List
This operation known for its hot-out-of-the-fryer doughnuts with delicate seasonal flavors is kicking off Hanukkah in style with a box of sufganiyot, complete with four different fillings: strawberry jam, apricot rose petal, peach bay leaf, and cardamom Shiro plum. Pre-orders are now live for pickup from the business's truck on Thursday, December 7, so don't delay, although some may be available for walk-up purchase. If you miss out, 9th & Hennepin will also sell them again from their takeout window in West Seattle on Friday, December 15—preorders for that day will open on Monday, December 11.

Dingfelder's Delicatessen List
Capitol Hill's resident Jewish deli will go all out for the Festival of Lights with a box that contains a choice of 12-hour brisket, smoked salmon, or roasted lemon garlic herb kosher chicken, along with latkes, soup, two side dishes, four raspberry sufganiyot, four wood dreidels, gelt, and an optional bottle of red or white wine, all wrapped up with a big bow. They'll also have latkes available by the dozen, with options for classic or gluten-free varieties, and your choice of two side dishes, such as Honeycrisp applesauce, caramelized onion mushroom compote, orange cranberry relish, or horseradish gravy. Main dishes, side dishes, soups, and desserts, including sufganiyot, are also available à la carte.
